DOJ appointment catalyst for CenturyLink, Level 3 deal, says Raymond James
Makan Delrahim was finally confirmed by the Senate yesterday as head of the Department of Justice Antitrust Division, Raymond James analyst Frank Louthan tells investors in a research note. He believes not having an antitrust head is at least partially to blame for the delay in mergers and acquisitions in the Technology & Communications space this year, including outstanding transactions like CenturyLink (CTL)/Level 3 Communications (LVLT) and AT&T (T)/Time Warner (TWX), as well as potential deals like Sprint (S)/T-Mobile U.S. (TMUS). The appointment of Delrahim is a catalyst for the approval of CenturyLink's acquisition of Level 3, where the Department of Justice has been the bottleneck, Louthan writes.

TiVo extension with AT&T shows strength of portfolio, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty believes TiVo's (TIVO) intellectual property license deal extension with AT&T (T) to 2025 demonstrates the strength of its patent portfolio and its usefulness to the pay-TV providers. The deal also shows the longevity of the value of TiVo's IP portfolio, Auty tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

Oppenheimer expects Sprint, T-Mobile merger to happen
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan expect T-Mobile (TMUS) to merge with Sprint (S) in a stock-for-stock transaction at a $10 per share Sprint valuation. A T-Mobile/Sprint will be a better competitor to Verizon (VZ)/AT&T (T), the analyst says, adding that while the process is likely to have a few bumps and require time, he expects a merger to happen. Horan reiterates a Perform rating on Sprint's shares.

Sprint, T-Mobile merger unlikely to get regulatory approval, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Matthew Niknam continues to believe a potential merger between Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) faces "significant hurdles" and is ultimately unlikely to get past regulatory concerns. Merits of the deal, however, are "unparalleled, and very tough to debate," Niknam tells investors in a research note following CNBC's report of progressing deal talks. He believes derivative stock reactions on the news, namely strength in AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) and weakness in the tower names, could be at risk of reversing. Among the towers, the analyst has Buy ratings on American Tower (AMT) and Crown Castle (CCI).

General Electric likely to cut FY17 EPS view below $1.50, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Nigel Coe said he expects General Electric to lower its FY17 EPS guidance to below $1.50 per share from its currently stated view of $1.60-$1.70 when the company reports earnings on October 20. The analyst, who has $1.40 EPS forecast for the full year, also expects GE to reduce its $12B-$14B CFOA target to closer to $11B and sees scope for the buyback program to be scaled back. Coe, who is not certain if all of this is priced into the stock, is "tactically cautious" into the report and keeps an Equal Weight rating and $25 target price on GE shares.

Citi 'glass half-full' on General Electric management changes
Citi analyst Andrew Kaplowitz says he's taking a "glass half-full" view on General Electric's leadership changes. The analyst is surprised at the "relatively quick" departure of Vice Chair and CFO Jeffrey Bornstein, but believes CEO John Flannery and GE as a whole are effecting a "clean break" from the past. While bears may view the announcement as another signal that GE's recovery could be slower than expected, the changes "likely represent a necessary step toward a more accountable, streamlined, GE," Kaplowitz tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $31 price target.

JPMorgan says GE dividend cut 'increasingly likely,' drops target to $20
JPMorgan analyst C. Stephen Tusa believes a dividend cut at General Electric is "increasingly likely" after the analyst again reduced his estimates. Tusa lowered his estimates to reflect reduced revenues and profits in the Power and Oil & Gas segment as well as higher restructuring expenses. The analyst cut his price target for GE shares to $20 from $22 and keeps an Underweight rating on the name. The stock closed yesterday down 6c to $23.36. With recently added Board members potentially pushing for a quick fix, with all outcomes on the table, a more comprehensive breakup is possible, Tusa tells investors in a research note titled "'Terminal Value': Cutting Numbers, Price Target, and Value of Power in Sum of the Parts." His non-GAAP earnings per share estimates now sit at $1.40/$1.25/$1.40/$1.50 for 2017/2018/2019/2020.

Big bank set-up not great, would sell into extended rally, says Baird
Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.

Citi may have 'even more upside potential,' says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Mike Mayo says Citigroup remains his top bank selection, but could have even more upside potential with restructuring. The analyst believes Citi can sell parts easier than realized, especially given only ''limited'' countries where consumer and institutional are highly integrated and an ability to divest consumer assets mostly by geography. Citi should at least remain open to more restructuring, he contends. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Citi decline on earnings due to soft credit card guidance, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Susan Katzke says yesterday's 3.4% slide in Citigroup stock price in spite of the earnings beat is likely due to its credit card guidance. Katzke says that even if Citi's North American card results fall 25% short of her forecast, it would result in a "manageable" 2% hit to EPS, maintaining her Outperform rating and $83 price target.
